AP Source: Bobcats interview UNLV's Augmon
CHARLOTTE — A person familiar with the situation says the Charlotte Bobcats have interviewed former UNLV star and current Running Rebels assistant coach Stacey Augmon for a spot on Mike Dunlap's coaching staff.
The person spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no hiring decisions have been made. The person also says assistant coaches Rob Werdann and Ralph Lewis will not be retained.
However, the Bobcats are trying to work out a deal to keep Stephen Silas, who worked as an assistant the last season-and-a-half under his father, former Bobcats coach Paul Silas. Stephen Silas was among those who interviewed for the Bobcats head coaching job before Dunlap was hired.
Augmon played 15 years in the NBA, including one season with the Charlotte Hornets in 2001-02.
